explained everything very understandable, showed me the fracture of my arm on the X-ray etcOct 05,2016
My son was admitted for observation, discharge Dr. instucted me to follow up with Ortho and PCP, which I did, Dr. Carmichael did not exam my son, walked in the room and said he needed to be seen in Neurology not ortho... worst bedside manner I have EVER encountered. If you look at the amount of Dr visits we had over a period of 8-10 days, you could only imagine the WORRY we had, it has been stressful and scary, and my son is still pending additional testing to try and find out the cause of his problems.Nov 07,2016
Whether report actually said "possible" fracture - a large cast was over-kill for the condition.Oct 28,2016
it was greatOct 28,2016
Dr. Carmichael's choice of words were inappropriate and cruel toward my 14 year old son. After leaving the Doctor's office, both my son and I felt horrible and degraded.Jan 13,2017
